Queen Mary Geography Society (QMGS)
QMGS is an academic society within the School of Geography. We aim to connect like-minded geographers together via a range of activities including academic talks, social nights on and around campus, local and national trips. We are also students like you and understand the transition you are experiencing so if you want to chat or get first-hand student advice - we are here for you.
Our objective is to make your student experience a memorable one!
Past events include hosting the former President of the Maldives, a range of walking tours, laser tag, pizza parties, movies nights, bar crawls... and more!!!
Membership is only £5 and allows access to all our events and discounts. Anyone is welcome to join, Geography student or other Queen Mary students. Please note that whilst some events may be subsidised, you may be required to provide a small contribution.
